Eastbound I-90 closed at Lookout Pass; drivers to seek alternate routes to avoid Montana closure

The Idaho Transportation Department has closed Interstate 90 in the eastbound direction at Lookout Pass to allow drivers to turn around and avoid a closure on I-90 in Montana.

Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) closed I-90 at milepost 26 near St. Regis following a semi crash resulting in a hazmat spill early this morning (Wednesday, Oct. 16). One westbound lane is open, but both eastbound lanes are closed. At this time it is not clear when the route will reopen but an extended closure is possible.

Drivers are advised to use US-2 or Idaho Highway 200 to cross into Montana. For travel conditions on Idaho routes, visit 511.idaho.gov. For travel conditions on Montana routes, visit roadreport.mdt.mt.gov.

ITD is in contact with MDT to open the route as quickly and as safely as possible.
